On the third Monday in January of each year, we celebrate and honor the life accomplishments of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
As an influential civil rights leader, Dr. King fought for equality and human rights for African Americans and all victims of injustice through peaceful, non-violent protests. When he was just 35, King became the youngest man to receive the Nobel Peace Prize, among his many accomplishments.
The following Martin Luther King, Jr. Quotes are some of my favorites that are meant to inspire us all for generations to come.
“We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope.”
“The time is always right to do what is right.”
“Violence is immoral because it thrives on hatred rather than love…violence ends up defeating itself. It creates bitterness in the survivors and brutality in the destroyers.“
“In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.”
“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.”
“There comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but he must take it because conscience tells him it is right.”
Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?‘
Let’s leave this world a little better than we found it and live by the golden rule… Treat others the way you want to be treated.
